This was a heavily modified sketch that started out in my book. Again, it was unplanned and was executed entirely in ink, and as no surprise didn't turn out how I wanted. So I brought it into Photoshop, edited, re-inked and redrew some parts, sprayed some color over it, and here ya' have it.

Starship Sketches: Part 3

This image was done the same way as the one in the post below. I sketched it all with a Pilot Hi-Tech .25 ballpoint on a 8.5x11 sketchbook page. There was little to no planning of the image (no pencils). I started noodling out the main ship, and just let the rest of the image 'happen'. You know, one of those artsy things. I cleaned up some of my failed and eyeballed perspective lines, and vomited out some colors...probably more than a sketch deserves, but it was fun.

Starship Sketches: Part 2

The black and white version was done with a .25 guage ballpoint, no pencil, straight to an 8x11 book page. I cleaned it up just a bit and slapped on some color.

This one is has the same story except I used a brush marker for spot blacks and a bit of white out.
